Drove out to Crystal Lake Ski Center today, but the final hill was way too icy. My car started to slide back while I was accelerating. While I was stuck, a pickup came sliding down the hill and just missed me.
So I said screw this. Went back to the church further down the hill, parked the car, and ran the rest of the way in.

They had just enough snow to make skiing possible, but, in their words, the trails were rolled, not packed. I was digging in for a lot of this. There was also a lot of uphill, but I did say I wanted to practice. So I can't complain.
Really cool trails actually and it looks like it could be a fun place for orienteering in warmer weather.

Very glad I didn't try to drive up. I probably could have made it up the hill, but the downhill is what concerned me.
This concern was validated when I saw an SUV in a ditch just off the road while running down. And it wasn't there when I ran up.
